Another photo of Neira, who has decided it's her new mission to beat Chris's yellow ribbon (from the Gary Larson challenge).

This one was done by wrapping a stiff wire around the lightbulb and attaching it to the handles of the pot. Then I cloned out the wire in Photoshop.

Additional Post processing: Cropped, rotated, levels, unsharp mask, selected background and adjusted levels separately to make the white whiter, selected the bulb and adjusted the levels to make it lighter, applied a flare filter on the lightbulb to make it look more lit up, cloned out Neira's pants that were showing behind the pot, cloned out some stray hairs on her forehead, used the clone tool and patch tool on her face for a more even skin tone, used the burn tool around her eyes for more definition, applied Neat Image and added border.

Not sure about this one. The floating light bulb is kinda strange.

Has the dnmc police visited this image? Well, it is cute and you get bumped to 8 to offset the object counters.

Very clever! Technically looks pretty good. Great concept shot. It would make an awesome stock image. Good job!

Outstanding. I really love this idea. This is the best I've seen yet. Of course I'm only at 19% but this is definitely worth a 10.

You clearly have three subjects when the challenge was explicit for two....nonetheless...this is a great shot creatively and technically...good job...a 7 that would have been a 9.

This is really nice. I like the lighting a white background. How did you suspend the light?
